Going to bed after wrapping up a long day and feeling a sudden urge to munch something. This is what most of us can definitely relate to. Midnight cravings are not uncommon and can occur even after you have done your dinner. When the tummy feels empty at night, we usually end up eating anything that can satiate our hunger such as biscuits, namkeen, packs of chocolates or ice creams. But these unhealthy foods are not the only way to deal with midnight cravings. Nutritionist Lovneet Batra in an Instagram post, shares some healthy snacks you can enjoy late at night.
But before we discuss what you can eat at midnight, let us know why the cravings disrupt our sleep. According to the nutritionist, the urge to eat something late at night can be due to multiple reasons. These include imbalanced blood sugar levels, irregular meal patterns, and night eating disorders. She says that if you are getting hungry at night then it could be because you are not eating enough during the day. Other factors that can trigger food cravings at night are an altered circadian rhythm and stress.
